With the passing of Clifton Karhu in 2007, Masao Ido became perhaps the best known living woodblock artist residing in Kyoto.

Ido was born in North-East China in 1945 and his family moved to Japan in 1946 finally settling in Kyoto in 1959 where he still lives and works today. Ido studied in Kyoto with Yoshida Koho (fabric dyeing)and Otsubo Shigechika (woodblock prints), and today belongs to the top group of established contemporary Japanese artists. His works are in the collections of the New York Modern Art Museum, the Boston Art Museum, the Kyoto National Museum, the Tokyo National Museum, the Florence Municipal Museum and in many private collections. Masao Ido currently hosts a Japanese television show on making woodblock prints on the NKK network and is frequently interviewed by Japanese news sources as an expert on the subject.
